Trainer Eddie Lynam can be forgiven for concentrating on Sole Power and Slade Power ahead of their run in the Hong Kong Sprint on Sunday, but the Dunshaughlin handler has four runners at Dundalk on Friday.

The trainer has two runners in the opening Irish Stallion Farms EBF Maiden at 5.45, and will be out to put two narrow defeats behind him.

Wish You Were here found only one too good last time and is going the right way, while recent course second Have A Great Day could put a spanner in the works.

Lynam's other two runners come in the Crowne Plaza Leading Jockey And Trainer Championship Rated Race, with Sylvan Mist the top weight after his staying-on second over a furlong shorter last time.

Penny Serenade has a bit to prove after being beaten a fair way here last time, so Joanna Morgan's Antiquus, with Joseph O'Brien up top, is likely to be a bigger threat to Sylvan Mist.

Fight U For It held on for second over a mile here last time and shaped as though the seven-furlong trip of the Christmas Party Packages At Dundalk Stadium Nursery Handicap would be right up his street.

Andrew Oliver's charge will be given plenty to think about by Myamo, who was only half a length down when they met here last time.

The hat-trick seeking Hello Humpfrey bids for more all-weather glory in the concluding Dundalk Stadium - Light Up Your Night Rated Race.

Peter Casey's charge showed his first career win was no fluke when following up last time, but he will have recent narrow second Carried and former course and distance winner Cottesloe in close attention.

Gold Tantrum and Whitethorne Scent both bid to go one better than their last-start second in the first division of the www.dundalkstadium.com Handicap, while the second division could be between Valley Queen and Tsar Paul.
